Our "Do Whatever the Hell They Want" Chickens and LaVern

I've always heard the term "Free Range" Chickens...well our ladies have taken that to a new level. They might be just a bit spoiled, but of course, I'm sure they wouldn't agree. Wilamena, one of our Dixie Rainbows, comfy on the couch while I fold clothes. She comes in every day for a visit. She's very polite of course and oddly enough, never poops when she's inside thank goodness! Nugget, one of our Sex Links. She's always been the boldest and the first to try everything, and she's always in the middle of whatever we are doing. She's very nosy. Dixie Chick, our... read more

Yorkshire coops polish chickens

This is Poppet my lovely polish cockerel. He's such a sweet thing so friendly and loves having cuddles and being a lap cockerel. Literally goes to sleep on you. I hatched him myself and have watched him grow into such a funny creature. With him being frizzle and having a large crest his vision is not so good so listens to me very carefully and even knows his name. I have 21 polish at the minute at various ages and love them all such an endearing breed that do well confined as they can't see to well so you can really build a bond with them. Sometimes over taming them.... read more

Love My Chicken Adventure

Ok Ma and Pa Kettle (The Egg and I) got me I wanted chickens, so I studied, and studied and and studied...for months, close to a year. Trying to find which Chicken would be right for me. My husband and I rented a small farm. He still has to drive about an hour and half to work. But getting settled in we are loving it here. To my surprise there is a hatchery just down the street...WOW..Is this meant to be or what...At first I wanted to get Production Reds and was contacting Cackle Hatchery, they have a great reputation. After more searching a bit more I... read more

Mooredge Poultry

Lots of stuff going on here at the moment - just dealing with the moult is one thing but getting ready for winter and the preparation for control of the mud in the paddocks and fields takes up lots of time.   We''re still hatching new stock; here is one of the latest arrivals - little Araucana Alice!       Plus our day old chicks are moving from nursery stable to rearing pen - here is little Brahma "Nookie Bird" at the front and "Berry" behind her!   Alice is growing fast - she's 3 weeks old today...   read more

My Guinea Adventure!

We moved to Kansas in the late Spring of 2014.  There were unreal amounts of ticks here.  So we researched and decided to add Guinea.  It is certainly not a fast process but it has been fun and I now have the best coop thank to my Husband and his buddy!  I am lucky!       10x12 platform    Kids and dogs enjoying the new structure. Babies arrived the first week in August!  We also had just gotten a puppy!  Crazy summer.   My oldest dog would guard the babies.  She would just sit next to their brooder!       Walls and roof!... read more
